What are the brokerage fees for the tenants to rent an apartment in Boston?
I've done a little research, and the common answer seems to be "skip the broker!" and find an apartment using one of the various sites like myapartmentmap.com to find your apartment, and there are plenty of sites that show ratings and rankings of apartments these days, too. Rental brokers are becoming a thing of the past.
If you do decide on that route however, expect to pay probably about a months' rent toward your broker.
